    Hope to see sometime in the near future an iMac Intel 30" with Quad-core also with 1 Tb of space and more memory.

    Anyways, does anyone know when Apple will release the new iMac Intel with the Blu-ray drive?

    Also will update the new MacBook they just released with a better graphics card?

    I know its a newb type of question, but I am dieing over here.

    I just hope it happens by like July - September 2007.

    An announcement at least, can't be too far off, as the PowerMac is the last remaining product (other than xServe I guess) to be put through the Intel blender.

    30" iMac is to big. They would not sell many.

    Yes I fully expect quad core. Sun is selling 8-core chips now for SPARC architecture so Intel can't be far. Maybe in only a couple years we could have quad core iMacs The Intel web site already uses the term "multi-core".

    They don't put "graphic cards" in notebooks. They solder "graphic chips" to the main logic board. I doubt they will ever set up the Macbook to be a gamming machine. but I'd expect the next Intel grapic processor to be slightly faster.

    Intel did a presentation here in LA a few weeks ago and had a slide showing a gues at what a computer would be like in 45 years. Basically 1TB RAM and 100 processor cores. The joke is that you'd need that to run Windows.
